The gene (E2A) for enhancer binding transcription factors E12 and E47 maps to the t(1;19) chromosomal translocation breakpoint in pre-B cell leukemias. Altered E2A transcripts lacking sequences coding for the helix-loop-helix DNA binding motif were detected in several t(1;19)-carrying cell lines. Fusion cDNAs that crossed the t(1;19) breakpoint were cloned(More)
We have characterized a transcription unit at chromosome band 19p13 that lies at the site of a chromosomal translocation breakpoint in T cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia. The lyl-1 gene is structurally altered following a t(7;19) translocation, resulting in its head-to-head juxtaposition with the T cell receptor C beta gene and truncation of lyl-1 RNA. The(More)
The gene (E2A) that codes for proteins with the properties of immunoglobulin enhancer binding factors E12/E47 was mapped to chromosome region 19p13.2-p13.3, a site associated with nonrandom translocations in acute lymphoblastic leukemias. The majority of t(1;19)(q23;p13)-carrying leukemias and cell lines studied contained rearrangements of E2A as determined(More)
Limbic seizures developed in rats following daily electrical stimulation of the basolateral nucleus of the amygdala. Animals were designated as "kindled" after five complete (stage 5) behavioral seizures were observed. A subgroup, designated as "superkindled," received three additional weeks of electrical stimulations. Kindled rats were significantly(More)
Cholecystokinin octapeptide (CCK-8) is prevalent as a co-transmitter in the mesolimbic dopamine pathway. The effect of proglumide, a CCK-8 antagonist, on two acute and one chronic behavioral models of dopamine function was tested. First, haloperidol was used to inhibit stereotypies induced by apomorphine in rats. Pre-administration of proglumide(More)
